SPACs – Trends and Structure after Tontine

In the summer of 2020, Tontine, the largest ever special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), debuted on the NY Stock Exchange.

In this video, created in partnership with the law firm Freshfields, we explore the structure and benefits of SPACs, and what accounts for their explosive popularity in 2020. What was special about Tontine, and what does it mean for the future of SPACs? Partners Pamela Marcogliese and Sebastian Fain explain.
